Strawberries and Cream Pancakes

  • Makes: 12 servings
  • Prep: 20 mins
  • Cook: 1 min to 2 mins per side

Ingredients

  • 3 cups coarsely chopped fresh strawberries
  • 1 tablespoon finely shredded orange peel
  • 1/4 cup orange juice
  • 1 cup whole wheat pastry flour
  • 1/2 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1/4 cup oat flour or oat bran
  • 2 tablespoons chia seeds or flax seeds
  • 1 tablespoon sugar*
  • 1 tablespoon baking powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1 1/2 cups fat-free milk
  • 1/4 cup refrigerated or frozen egg product, thawed, or 1 egg, lightly beaten
  • 2 tablespoons canola oil
  • 3/4 cup whipped Greek cream cheese**, softened
  • 1 - 2 tablespoons orange juice

Directions

  1. In a medium bowl combine strawberries, orange peel, and 1/4 cup orange juice. Cover and let stand for 20 to 30 minutes to blend flavors, stirring occasionally.
  2. In a large bowl stir together flours, seeds, sugar, baking powder, and salt. In another bowl use a fork to combine milk, egg, and oil. Add egg mixture all at once to flour mixture. Stir just until moistened (batter should be slightly lumpy).
  3. For each pancake, pour 2 tablespoons batter onto a hot, lightly greased griddle or heavy skillet. Spread batter to an even layer if necessary. Cook over medium heat for 1 to 2 minutes on each side or until pancakes are golden brown; turn over when surfaces are bubbly and edges are slightly dry. Keep pancakes warm in a 200 degrees F oven while making the rest.
  4. To serve, in a small bowl combine cream cheese and 1 to 2 tablespoons orange juice; spread evenly over pancakes. Top with strawberries.

From the Test Kitchen

*Test Kitchen Tip:

We do not recommend using a sugar substitute for this recipe.

**Test Kitchen Tip:

If you cannot find the Greek cream cheese, make your own. In a small bowl stir together 1/2 cup softened light tub-style cream cheese with 1/4 cup plain fat-free Greek yogurt until smooth.
